    I met Kelly in Nov. 2019 and started taking lessons shortly thereafter. I have since then moved my mare to her facility and put my horse in training. I loved the lessons but quickly realized that my horse and I really needed some concentrated training. We've learned so much in a short period of time and I am now much more confident. During my time there I've seen Kelly work with owners and their horses to transform them into respectful willing partners. She teaches the horses in a way that is clear to them which is why they understand what's being asked of them in a very short period of time. She is also very articulate when giving lessons. I encourage anyone that may be struggling with one thing or another with their horse to reach out and schedulean evaluation or lesson. She will teach you the tools you need to correct any issue your having.

    Kelly is a very knowledgeable and versatile trainer. She takes the time to get to know each individuals learning process and works with you on a level that you can understand, whether it beginner student or very experienced rider. She is patient and understanding .

    I came to Kelly as a dressage rider and with a young Mustang. She has been so patient with me and has done an excellent job with my horse. With each session she brings us closer to that partnership that everyone strives to achieve. I continue to learn new methods that work so well for both of us. As I become better my horse just gets better and better. Many people I ride with see it and comment. It's hard to imagine my horse has only been under saddle for 7 months and I am able to do many things with her. I am not the easiest student I'm an older person and dont have an easy horse and Kelly has worked her magic on us both.
